TOAM Takes To The Sea On The Most Luxurious Cruise Ever!

Our philosophy, as practitioners, is to stress the importance of nurturing the Mind, Body, and Soul. Hosting our convention next to the sea offers a ‘blue space’ to stimulate our minds with exhilarating education, nourish our bodies with great culinary experiences and soothe our souls with professional same-synergy networking.

We are an inclusive, professional-only organization offering a harmonious, creative learning environment for professional trichologists, hair loss specialists, hairstylists, barbers, naturopaths & holistic practitioners and medical professionals of all disciplines.

TOAM was created because of an unmet need for alternative therapies and holistic-based solutions to provide satisfying, long-lasting, low-risk results that can be offered as stand-alone treatments or paired with conventional medicines. TOAM’s signature protocols and holistic solutions offer an unmatched opportunity to restore hope for the practitioner and the client.

TOAM and BlackDoctor.org (BDO) will take over Holland America Line’s Nieuw Statendam for seven days and nights of concerts, parties, healthy living sessions, and much more. With non-stop entertainment and activities throughout the day and night, there’s more than you can possibly do on a single cruise!

Once on the ship, you’ll notice there’s fun everywhere you look– the show lounges are spectacular, there’s a variety of world-class restaurants, casino is crackin,’ and each bar makes even a simple drink a chance to chill in a setting less ordinary. Our team has events planned for every cruiser, including our top expert-led workshops, old school and new school parties, golf outings, games for singles and couples, theme nights, and more.

Our Destinations


Did someone say “private island?!” There’s nothing like Half Moon Cay, Holland America Line’s 2,400-acre private island paradise in the Bahamas. Soak in the solitude of the white-sand beach or snorkel through the clear waters of the sea. Wanting to have more fun in the sun? BDO will be hosting a volleyball tournament, beach workouts, and our exclusive beach party.

 

 


Is it just us, or did you read “Jamaica” and immediately start hearing the drums of Bob Marley’s “Jammin?” Well…we’re sure you hear them now, and that’s exactly what we’ll be doing in Jamaica. Unwind to the smooth sounds of the reggae shore and relax on a bamboo river raft down Martha’s Brae. Grab a friend and link hands as we climb the waterfalls at Dunns River Falls, or Bobsled through the Mystic Mountain. After your day of adventure, grab some Jamaican food and join us back on board for our stoplight party.

 


The Cayman Islands have everything you would want from a Caribbean destination—warm breezes, clear seas, and an exciting culinary scene. Between the celebrity chefs and the 135 or so resident nationalities that have seasoned the island’s giant melting pot, this is one of the best places to eat in the Caribbean. Don’t forget to visit Stingray City, where you’ll be able to swim with stingrays in the clear Cayman waters. At the start of the evening, we’ll be back on board hosting our healthy cocktail mixing, couples massage, and dance workshops.


Let’s get cozy in Cozumel at our spa day retreat. Get the rest and relaxation that only this paradise island can offer with world-class spa treatments. For the golfing enthusiast, play 18 holes on Cozumel’s championship golf course and enjoy the satisfaction of hanging with good friends, new and old. With a full day on land, let’s reset, relax, and restore in Mexico’s Caribbean Island.

SCIENCE

Breaking the Genetic Code
Many believe their fate is driven by family history but there is more evidence indicating lifestyle dictates our health and wellness more than our genetic code. This talk will reveal how we can overcome predictive health issues and even reverse ailments by understanding epigenetics.

Bugging Out
Microorganisms are oftentimes associated with illness and disease, but research is showing that certain bacteria are needed to improve health. Learn how your personal microbiome can influence your mental, physical and emotional well-being.

DEVICES AND PRODUCTS

Supplements: Take at Your Own Risk
Over 75% of Americans take supplements for health benefits and those marketed to combat hair loss have grown exponentially over the last 5 years. But few people realize the potential adverse effects and how to vet them properly. This workshop will provide you with the information needed to optimize the effectiveness of herbs and vitamins and let you know what to consider before their consumption.

The Black Art of Black Boxes
Hair practitioners are bombarded with gadgets and devices that give a variety of claims that range from the promise of regrowing hair to predicting medical issues that contribute towards hair loss. But most of the time, they are black boxes that do not have evidenced-based support. Find out what works, what doesn’t and when to make relevant purchases.

MEDICAL

Beating All Odds
Cancer is a devastating diagnosis and chemotherapy is an extra kick when a patient is already down. Walk hand-in-hand with clients down their path towards recovery by collaborating with oncologists. You will learn what to consider before, during and after treatments.

BUSINESS

Selling Made Easy
“I have invested thousands of dollars into my practice and still can’t convince those in need to pay for my services.” If this sounds like you, this is a talk you cannot miss! There are many factors that drive success but you will discover the magic key to open the world of opportunity for you and those who suffer from hair loss.

All this and more!
